The Housewife Assassin’s Handbook
Josie Brown, author provocateur, of the Housewife Assassin series – Murder, suspense, sex—and some handy household tips.
“The book ended with a hook that made me want to get the next one. I’m completely smitten.” —Barbara Vey, (romance reviewer, Publisher’s Weekly)

The Baby Planner
“Brown takes baby mania to its illogical, hysterical extreme in this bubbly romp. But what begins as a light foray into Bugaboo country turns into something bigger than a satire of status-obsessed Bay Area yum

my mummies as Brown takes a dark look at the fears of parenthood and family, with Katie’s heartbreaking longing for a child unveiling a disturbing reality about her marriage and family. Still, the message from the somber realities is one full of hope: love makes a family, commitment keeps it together.”—Publishers Weekly

Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives
“Already touted as the perfect summer beach read, this character-driven sometimes steamy book can best be described as the offspring of an affair between Desperate Housewives and a Jennifer Weiner novel….A quick look into the sometimes catty world of wealth where priorities get shifted, friendships get broken and marriages, like their mansions, get rearranged. It was light and fluffy with some excellent dialogue.” —
